About the Artist
Samuel Bjorgum applies thick layers of paint on Dibond that can require months to dry, creating wrinkled textures on the dried surface. Then, he surprises the viewer by cutting the Dibond into shapes that accentuate the surfaces.
Regan Golden abstractly references the natural world in her work, in which she blends actual and digital collage and paint. Her work evokes the handmade, the hand-cut, even when she uses digital marks. She creates an illusion of breaking down and reassembling in her micro and macro examination of flora and fauna. Time and layers are evident in her edges as she plays with borderlines between spaces to frame particular viewpoints.
James Holmberg paints pure, beautiful works with stark, slow gradations of color like doorways or portals into the unknown, then uses his hand to generate painterly abstractions. His paintings conjure vast, deep space, which is gently disrupted by the immediacy on the surface of his gestural marks.
Syed Hosain explores collage and acrylic paint, with images burned at the edges to achieve smooth surfaces. There are swaths of history, freedom, and exploration in his work, which he achieves through unique methods that give the work heft and weight. He creates nuanced boundaries that challenge where collage and painting begin and end.
